Horse trekking - Horseback Riding - Ecuador

Guests of Hacienda La Alegría can visit incredible large areas close to the volcano rocks.

At Hacienda La Alegria our horses are very important to us. Most have been bred here on the farm from mixed Criollo (native South American), English Thoroughbred and Arabian stock, resulting in a near perfect combination of toughness, agility, calm temperament and "mountain sense". Beginners and experienced riders alike have found them easy to ride, willing and good mannered. If you have previous riding experience you will be given plenty of opportunity to canter.

We have a range of tack including North American style, English style, Mclellan calvary, Chillean and traditional Ecuadorian "Chagra" style with its intricate leather-work and saddle horn.

Horseback Riding

Getting There

The hacienda is close to the village of Aloag, on the west side of the Panamericana highway 40 km (25 miles) south of Quito. Buses leave Quito on average every ten minues and take approximately one hour to Aloag, where we will be happy to pick you up. If you book in advance we may also be able to pick you up from Quito.

The old narrow-gauge railway which once connected Quito to the coast, but which now only runs as far as Cotopaxi National Park, passes the back of the garden. An alternative way of getting to La Alegria is to "ride the roof" and ask the conductor to stop the train at the farm (km 415)!
